I received an email from Target.com asking if we have an AS2 connection that we need to fill out a form. What is this connection?

Hi Amy! Generally speaking, AS2 is a connection method that several trading partners choose to utilize with SPS Commerce, as opposed to VAN or FTP connections. Technically speaking, AS2 is a secured transfer protocol which uses encryption and certificate keys to transmit data.

I saw that you were also chatting with my colleague, Bryan, in regards to this question. Please let me know if anything else comes up!
